How to Deal with a Warrant for your arrest in Collin County, Texas

While all warrants for your arrest can result in your being arrested, not all warrants are the same, and some can be dealt with more easily than others. This guide will help you understand the differences and what you can do with regard to each one.

Additional resources provided by the author

You can find many links to information regarding Collin County warrants and other information at my website under the Resources section. The link to "Collin County Warrants" will show activated warrants from all over Texas. Note, however, that not all warrants appear because not all warrants are activated. Frequently, traffic warrants are not activated on the state-wide system and are only in the particular city's database. For instance, someone could have Plano PD traffic warrants that only Plano PD could see. Likewise, when an officer gets a warrant for arrest for a particular crime, he may not activate it because he intends to make the arrest himself in order to have a chance to talk to the suspect. If a warrant is not active, then the Collin County jail will not let you turn yourself in on it because, to the jail, the warrant doesn't exist. The link to Collin County Jail Inmate Search will show you information, including charges and bail amounts, for any inmate in the Collin County jail, provided he has been booked in. It could take anywhere from 1 to 12 hours to be booked in, however.
